Baby Jack

I recently had the privilege of photographing Baby Jack with his family. He is such a cutie and so full of expression! It was tons of fun!

I love this one as he holds on to Daddy's finger.

Look at those blue eyes!
Just give me a call or email if you're interested in having a family/baby session like this!

Ginny's Bridal Session

One word: GORGEOUS! I love love bridal sessions! Especially when the bride is amazingly beautiful and the venue is also just as beautiful. We shot these images at Ginny's church downtown Mobile where she and Matt will soon be married. There are soooo many great images to choose from, I decided to show them here as a 'slide' show. With this I can show you lots and lots of images easily and quickly! Here are a few of my favs. Enjoy!

A Little Knight Music

I'm sending a huge shout out to Ted Knight and his band who played for Deborah and Ramon's wedding. They are actually from Florida and this was their first Alabama wedding! Although I didn't get to visit with them much that night, Ted and I have actually gotten to visit some by email since the wedding. The band did a great job so give them a look at and tell 'em I sent ya!

Deborah and Ramone

It seems I have known this family forever. I first met with Mrs. Whetstone for coffee way back in 2006 when she booked me for her daughter Deborah's wedding day. Deborah actually lives in Spain and her mom has been so gracious to take care of all the wedding day details. It is also in Spain where Deborah met her groom, Ramone. What a special day when the 2 families came together on a hot, Summer's day in Gulf Shores, AL to celebrate their marriage. It was also quite fun trying to communicate with everyone since soooo many people in attendance only spoke Spanish. Everytime I looked over at Clark, he was actually trying sign language! haha! Now if you've ever heard Clark and me talk, we've been accused of having a pretty long, Southern drawl. I can only imagine what Ramone's family and friends must have thought of that. It's hard for other Southerner's to even understand us sometimes! ; ) Thanks to everyone for taking us in, taking care of us and treating us like your own. Many best wishes as you begin your new life together!

What a sweet moment I was able to catch as Deborah helped Amanda (Ramone's daughter) put on her slippers.

I love fun ring pictures. These were the toppers for the cupcakes on the childrens table.

A clown to entertain the children--and she was bilingual! : )

A time to themselves.
Daddy's hands.

And of course, a sneak peak slideshow.
